The problem considered in this paper is that of a rectangular slab of uniform thickness strengthened by four edge-beams; it is loaded transversely and supported at its corners on rigid stanchions. Symmetry of geometry and of loading is taken to exist about both the axes x = 0 and y = 0 (Fig 1).

The paper reviews the modern form of composite steel framework in which the structure is designed as a box shell and deliberate provision is made in the overall design for the contribution to load support and transverse stability from ancillary elements of the structure.
